Graduation 2018


On Friday the 23rd November 2018 PCI College welcomed it’s graduating Class of 2018 to St. Ann’s Church, Dawson Street, in Dublin 2. This year we were joined by 149 graduands, who along with their family and friends were welcomed to the ceremony by our Year 2 Head of BSc (Hons) Counselling and Psychotherapy, Colm Early, who opened the proceedings. Gael Kilduff, our Acting Head of Counselling and Psychotherapy, gave an inspiring welcoming address where she spoke about the need for the former students to practice self-care as they embark on their role as Therapists.


PCI College Academic Director, Rose Bedford, gave the congratulatory address to graduands. In this speech, Rose acknowledged the hard work that they had each put into their studies to reach this point. Rose also reminded them that learning is forever on-going.


Following the staff procession which signalised the end of the ceremony, the graduates and their family and friends were invited to enjoy some refreshments in 37 Dawson St.


A huge congratulations to all our graduates.

What our Students Say

“My experience with PCI was the best decision in my life, I would rate PCI 10. I'm not saying it was easy, especially starting a new career at the age of 50, but I got through with a lot of hard work and dedication. Liam McCarthy and Josephine Murphy were an inspiration and all the other Tutors I had during the four years. Since I got my Degree I have been so busy counselling, only last week I was offered another new job, its amazing. Next year I will be 70 and hopefully the work will continue.”
